Weekly Recap April 18-April 24

Oh, what a week it's been. I've had client meltdowns and problems with the dogs. My fiancee went to Missouri to pick up a horse. I was supposed to be with her, but I got a phone call this morning from the kennel we left a couple of the dogs with that said that The Reaper was loose and had been since 5:30 a.m. Understandably pissed, I had to borrow my parents' truck to go back to Norfolk to find my dog. So my fiancee went ahead to Missouri and I went home to find The Reaper. I found him within 15 minutes. All told he was at large for about ten hours terrorizing the countryside.

  1. I got that issue of Terrorizer too. I'm fascinated by the whole Varg / Euronymous thing, though I would never pay any money for any of Varg's stuff (it's one thing to espouse dangerous beliefs, it's another thing to act on them criminally).

    That is my first ever metal magazine. I'd love to subscribe, but it's quite expensive.

    Hey, here's an idea for a post I'd be interested to see. I'd like to see you compare the pros and cons of some of the different metal mags. I can see Terrorizer has a lot going for it: it comes with a sample CD, it has A LOT of news and reviews, and it's British (so they cover the European scene much better than the American magazines), and it's not aimed too strongly at guitar players.

  2. Actually I sort of did that once. I bought issues from four different magazines before going on vacation last year and kind of did a rough review of each one. Terrorizer came out on top with Revolver at the bottom.
